South Auckland is disappointed by the latest Covid-19 cases, but a local councillor says it’s pointless pointing fingers and moaning.

On Saturday evening, it was announced that a 21-year-old sibling of a Papatoetoe High School student had tested positive for Covid-19. The 21-year-old’s mother also tested positive for the virus.

OPINION: Perhaps sensing blood in the water for the Government as Auckland begins its second lockdown in a fortnight, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has pointed to the personal failures of a few and stoked the fear of death by Covid.

“Covid kills people ... We must never lose sight of the reason we take these measures,” Ardern said, opening a press conference with two “reminders” on Sunday afternoon.

Melanie Huata-Lucas - who last year became the first representative of the Royal New Zealand Navy to have a moko kauae - says she hopes to encourage other wahine Māori sailors to be confident in their identity.

The 32-year-old received her moko kauae after 13 years of service with the Navy as a sailor and events co-ordinator. She is now transitioning into a new role as marae events and protocol manager for the Navy.

For planetary scientists, it was the boldest claim in a generation: an unseen extra planet, as much as 10 times the mass of Earth, lurking on the Solar System’s frontier, beyond Neptune. But the claim looks increasingly shaky, after a team of astronomers reported last week that the orbits of a handful of distant lumps of rock are not bunched together by the gravity of Planet Nine, as its proponents believe, but only seem clustered because that’s where telescopes happened to be looking.

ACT leader David Seymour says the Government has an "attitude problem" - and its "complacency' dealing with COVID-19 has led to the latest lockdown.
